i will be moving to the dover, clarksville area soon. can u tell me about gateway hospital patient ratios and base pay? is it a good enviroment to work in? I am a charge RN nights but I take a full load 8 pts. we have 24 beds in med surg we usually have 3 RNs and a CNA. getting really stressed at this point, along with everyone else. the facility has great potential and great Dr.'s, but the hospital seems more concerned about $$.
